Tine Deville was married to MaryAnn Bellegard and they had 10 children including our great great grandmother Azaline Deville.

    Thanks for posting, Valentine & Marianne are my great great grandparents. Great grandparents were Palaneau and Rosalie.

      Thank you Marci. I haven’t had the opportunity to visit Avoyelles Parish yet. Most of what I’ve shared about the Deville family, I found online. If you have any interesting family stories to share, I’d love to hear them. –Emily
